Former Roma and Real Madrid forward Antonio Cassano thought that Lazio were now the favourites to achieve a top-four finish this season.

Speaking on Christian Vieri’s Twitch channel (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 38-year-old Italian commented on the state of the top four race after the Biancocelesti’s win yesterday.

I always said, if Lazio win, they’ll be back in the mix, and then one of Juventus and AC Milan will be out. Milan have confirmed that they are starting to struggle on a physical and mental level.

I see it as very complicated for them and I don’t know if I think them or Juve are worse. Watch out for Lazio, they may be behind on paper but they have quite easy games ahead.

The most in form and the favourite at the moment is Lazio.

The Biancocelesti’s remaining opponents this season are Genoa, Fiorentina, Parma, Roma, Torino and Sassuolo.
